Tonight, Herman Cain, a TEA Party favorite, endorsed Newt Gingrich:

During his brief speech, Cain said that “Newt is going through the sausage grinder”, something he knew a thing or two about. Cain then said that Newt’s subjecting himself to these attacks “because he cares about the future of the United States.”

While Mitt’s in the process of tearing down each of his opponents with the fiercest, most dishonest attacks in GOP primary history, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, Sarah Palin and Rick Perry are standing up and fighting against Mitt’s corrupt Establishmentarians.

Legal Insurrection calls Mitt’s dishonest, vile attacks Scorched Earth II. The Lady Logician wrote about a NY Times article outlining Mitt’s intentional attempt to destroy Newt Gingrich:

A team of some of the most fearsome researchers in the business, led by Mr. Romney’s campaign manager, Matt Rhoades, spent days dispensing negative information about Mr. Gingrich, much of it finding its way to the influential Drudge Report, which often serves as a guide for conservative talk radio and television assignment editors and to which Mr. Rhoades has close ties.

The size and enthusiasm of Mr. Gingrich’s events scared supporters of Mr. Romney, who had struggled to build similar audiences. Local activists backing Mr. Romney complained that his Boston team was too regimented and slow to meet the challenge.

Here’s the Lady Logician’s timely observations on Mitt:

Mitt Romney saw Florida slipping away from him so he lashed out. These are not the actions of a confident candidate; these are the actions of a desperate, despicable campaign. The GOP deserves better than this.

Notice that Mitt’s first instinct was to outclass Newt or present a more inspiring vision for America. Mitt’s first instinct was to tear his opponent down to Mitt’s size.

That’s despicable and it’s telling. Mitt’s implicitly admitted that he’s an inferior candidate, that he can’t defeat Newt on the battlefield of ideas. Do the GOP’s party faithful think we should attempt to defeat President Obama with a man who thinks he isn’t the superior candidate?

I’m asking that question of the TEA Party activists, the get-things-done people, not the GOP Establishment. The GOP Establishment, aka the corrupt, DC-bound wing of the GOP, has already made their opinion known. They’ve endorsed Mitt’s go-along-to-get-along agenda.

When the TEA Party was started, it was an act of defiance against the corrupt Obama administration. This year, the TEA Parties across the country need to rally against Mitt’s corrupt practices. It’d be nice if they’re for Newt but it’s important that they’re steadfastly against Mitt’s hateful Alinskyite tactics.

Intellectually, America deserves better than Mitt’s small ball agenda. Integritywise, America deserves far better than Mitt’s despicable actions. TEA Party conservatives won’t support a lying, Alinsky-following Massachusetts liberal as their nominee.

Mitt’s burned his bridges in his I’ll-say-anything-to-be-the-nominee quest. Independents won’t vote for a backstabber like Mitt. That’s because he’s got sore loser written all over him.

    I’ll agree with you on both accounts against Mitt, but this is the one that would cause me to overlook Mr. Gingrich’s personal and political faults. We don’t need another agenda of nibbling around the edges of a Mt. Etna-sized problem.

    And on the other matter, Mitt isn’t equipped for the onslaught Obama will bring against HIM if he is the nominee. His is the big glass house. I keep asking the Mitt people to explain to my why they want a nominee that likely cannot win (against Obama), and wouldn’t matter much (against the problem) if he did.

    Jerry, you’re spot on. Those are exactly the right questions to ask.
